PCB provides update on Abrar, Khurram, Shadab Khan’s rehab

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) provided an update on the rehabilitation of Shadab Khan, Abrar Ahmed and Khurram Shahzad on Thursday.

Right-arm spinner Abrar Ahmed and right-arm fast bowler Khurram Shahzad have started their rehab under the medical panel headed by Dr Sohail Saleem at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore.

25-year-old Abrar, who has featured in six Test matches for Pakistan, returned from Australia earlier this month.

He had left the field due to pain in his right leg during the first-class game against Prime Minister XI in Canberra ahead of the three-Test series.

Meanwhile, 24-year-old Khurram sustained a stress fracture after playing the first Test against Australia in Perth.

“Abrar [Ahmed] and Khurram [Shahzad] have just joined us for rehabilitation. Upon their arrival, these two players underwent mandatory testing to understand the nature of their injuries,” said Dr Sohail Saleem.

“They have now been provided with a plan, which they will work on under the supervision of the medical team,” he further added.

He also confirmed that all-rounder Shadab Khan, who copped an ankle injury in the recent National T20 Tournament, has recovered after undergoing a five-week rehab at the National Cricket Academy.

“It is pleasing to see Shadab Khan has been declared fit after undergoing a robust rehab plan under the medical team here at the National Cricket Academy.”
